Variety reported yesterday that Megan Fox will star as April O’Neill in Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Bay also confirmed it on his website. It is not an animated movie. When Sarah messaged to tell me this, my first reaction was disappointment. Full Story

Oh my God, with this, Ethan Hawke. Are you serious? Elaine loves to taunt Michelle and me about our teenage love for him. I have to admit, it feels embarrassing in retrospect. Not because he wasn’t cute then, or appealing to our young selves, but because there’s that sanctimonious thing that is so exhausting – that guy who first burst your bubble about sweatshops when you thought your clothes were cute, or who pointed out how everyone gets lonelier as they get older and life’s a bitch and your children leave you and it’s pointless. Full Story

For all my sh-tting on Jessica Simpson, here’s something I can actually appreciate about her: unlike the Ashley Greenes, Kellan Lutzes, and Lindsay Lohans of the world, Porny has never said she wants to win an Oscar one day. She probably has a better chance -- which isn’t a chance at all -- than those previously named. Full Story

Who are you wearing? The age old red carpet question has taken on special new meaning, now that it’s been revealed this year’s Oscar gift bags include a pack of condoms, specifically, Naked Brand condoms. They’re marketed as a luxury rubber, but at only $20 a box, this is extravagance anyone can afford. Full Story

As I’ve been saying, LA is where you need to be for your career this weekend, if you can manage it. And with the release of Man Of Steel approaching, Henry Cavill needs the face time. Since his girlfriend is the most interesting thing about him -- to me, anyway -- it’s good that she’s along for the ride, although conventional Hollywood publicity strategy might say otherwise. Full Story

On etalk we always joke that "red carpet run-ins" is one of our go-to stories leading up to major events. As Ben Mulroney just told me as we're shooting our links right now under the Oscar tent, it never happens. They never "run-in". They always avoid. There are a few avoid situations this year, including Renee Zellweger and Bradley Cooper. Full Story

What did I say yesterday?!? In my last post on Thursday I noted that Katie Holmes was out of New York, presumably to do some work on the Oscar circuit as the ex Mrs Tom Cruise, pleading specifically for her NOT to show up wearing her own sh-t. Check out Katie last night...in that f-cking black jumpsuit she designed, and that she's worn on a couple of occasions already. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

The Hollywood Reporter posted a fascinating discussion with an Academy voter yesterday that went down as he was filling out his Oscar ballot. He completed it in the presence of THR’s Scott Feinberg, with commentary and rationale -- compelling insight into how Oscar happens and, once again, how it’s all a popularity contest.  Read Full Intro

Katie’s hitting the circuit

Most celebrities, if not already in LA, are en route to LA. Especially this weekend. LA is where some work will be done -- at the parties, on the carpets -- for those who are nominated for Oscars and those not nominated for Oscars. This is where you hint at something over a cocktail, express interest in a part by the pool, anything that sets you up for the Next. Full Story

Eddie Redmayne arrived in LA yesterday with ... a lot of luggage. Given that he’s been the best dressed man so far during award season, this is understandable. He needs his gear. Let the man have his gear. Last time we heard from Eddie Redmayne he was throwing up at the BAFTAs. Happily he’s made a full recovery. Full Story
